I wanted to stick with theme of composition for awhile. Mainly because it is something I want to improve in my own paintings. This is my day to do paperwork, so I am going back to a painting that I did awhile ago, but one where my emphasis was achieving a composition with strong abstract shapes and an entrance into the painting. The angle of the fabric leads you into the painting
I remember doing a thumbnail and really trying to put these principles into practice. I need to keep this book open when I paint. .
All this is on page 33 of Ian Robert's book, Mastering Composition. He is writing on new one called Search for Beauty. It won't be published for awhile, but I can't wait to get it.
PS - Later today I plan to do some thumbnails at least to stick to the composition a day plan, maybe for a month even though I know a year would be better.
